Printed façade in Perth, Australia
The project sits in the new Elizabeth Quay's plaza, which is a mixed-use development in the central business district of Perth. The new plaza unifies the whole project and acknowledges the 40,000 years old role of landing and welcoming into the city from the Swan River.
It is designed as a 5 sided figure, the patterning and perforations continue on to the roof for the benefit of future Ritz Carlton occupants and surrounding office buildings. A collection of LEDS skims light across the roof surface shimmering in to the night and reflecting during the day.
Artist Pamela Gaunt worked closely with iph architects to develop concepts and fully embed art with architecture. Inspired by the unique gems of Western Australia and the Gelato Ice-cream, colours and patterns were developed and layered to create a synergy of product and purchaser.
